Interior, St Michael and All Angels, Billinghay
Grade I listed

St Michael & All Angels is traditional in design and consists of a tower and spire, a nave, north and south aisles, south porch and chancel. The earliest portion of fabric is the lower part of the tower, which is 13th century, and is surmounted by a bell tower and broach spire, rebuilt in 1787 and 1912, is said to have been taken from Metheringham Hall.
Internally, the church is small, but the walls are unusually thick, giving a better effect to the small lancet windows. The roof of the 14th century nave contains much of the old 15th century timbers with carved bosses. The 4 bay north arcade opens into a narrow north aisle, rebuilt in 1865 when much of the church was restored. The stone font is 15th century with a modern oak cover.
The chancel is 14th century and contains old 15th century beams in the roof. The clerestory was added during the Perpendicular period.
The east window of the south aisle contains modern stained glass.
